Obama Stimulus Grant Awarded To PS/MS 183Q
PS/MS 183Q, under Principal Renee Peart-Zachary, received approval for an Obama Stimulus Grant that provided new equipment for four sixth-grade classes. They were awarded by Computers for Youth, which granted flat-screened Dell computers. Assistant Principal Patricia Finn requested the grant, and now students receive limited free Internet access and computers to take home. Students’ families received mandatory training and homework assignments in an effort to help increase their ability to use their brand new computers. The principal, assistant principal, and teachers of PS/MS 183Q believe this gift will inspire students to be very creative with computer technology.
